Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!

    New Vegas is hard. I'm having a hard time doing much of anything story related.

    Is it just me or I am tackling things way too early?

    So what is the non bs approach to nutrition

    @mazzy I am busy being depressed by the road at the moment but after I finish it I will blow my mind with your article
    meticulously record what you eat and don't eat where you don't have a working knowledge of what you are eating

    I just had to look up sbarro pizza because I ate a slice today for lunch

    this tiny piece of pizza had 460 calories and 45% of my daily sodium intake

    make sure that through exercise and diet you are maintaining a reasonable calorie deficit of 500 to 1000 calories depending on your BMI and BMR

    I think it was Bowen who in the weight-loss thread thought he was going to survive on 500 calories a day
    your body cannot maintain a large calorie deficit because you start producing starvation signals and before you know it you're curled up in a corner eating sticks of butter

    Are you citing the recent research that mentions that running a slight calorie deficit can extend your lifespan?

    Am I missing something? I can dig up a citation because I cant remember the class of molecules I am thinking of

    Sometimes people say "Hey, has anybody told you that you look like Jimmy Fallon" when they really mean Jimmy Kimmel.

    Usually I say "You mean Jimmy Kimmel?" and they're like "Oh right" but one time this guy tried to act like he really meant Jimmy Fallon but he wasn't fooling anybody.

    So...I'm going to start making my opus in XNA. An RPG. It's going to be so awesome that the world will cry when they see me. Just like now, but these will be tears of happiness instead of tears of fright and terror.

    Drez! I'm working on my own RPG using the RPG maker XP/VX software. We can be rpg buddies.

    What's "RPG maker XP/VX"? I was thinking of just building my own engine from scratch, but I dunno. What do you recommend?

    It's just a building block engine. It's got all of the stuff for a good old snes type rpg with some ability for custom code if you want to go 3d rather than sprite. It's for making PC games though so I doubt it works with XNA. It's just a nice cheap program. You can make your own sprites and music and import them in and make some cool stuff.

    Here's what I do...

    Okay, so for today do I want the Deux Ex collection for $5? (I've never played it)

    I'm probably getting Monkey Island 1 and 2 for $7.50

    You want the first Deus Ex, not the mediocre second one. And you want both Monkey Island games because they are still funny after all these years. Three A+ games for $10.

    I don't think I've had Sbarro

    There's one in my local mall. The guy there is really damn good at hard sells.


    ...Also when the hell did I gain confidence? I just told someone that I'm awesome, and realized that I wasn't fooling around or faking it. I had a firm, unshakable belief that I was awesome in the context of the discussion.

    ...How?

    I mean, I liked the game, beat it twice, but it is so sadly easy.

    Everything turns into a gunfight, I can't stealth worth a shit

    The minigames are awful and I always run out of time and fuck it up

    I end up martial arting a lot of dudes to death because my pistol has no accuracy I guess, I shoot at people and they lose no health

    I can't figure out how to throw grenades or anything, they threw too much information at me in the tutorial and I didn't absorb it all

    Now I am going to go eat some lunch so if you reply there may be a gap in my response

    That's kind of the problem I ran into. I put like every single point at start into stealth and just maxed that early on and it made the game kind of a cakewalk.

    It's a lot of fun, but it's kind of a poor man's metal gear solid

    make sure that through exercise and diet you are maintaining a reasonable calorie deficit of 500 to 1000 calories depending on your BMI and BMR

    I would go so far as to argue that there is no evidence that a typical person can actually maintain a 500-calorie deficit for any significant period of time.

    every person who doesn't like an acquired taste always seems to think everyone who likes it is faking it. it should be an official fallacy.

    most sbarro is bad. Though, every once in a while one of the locations is really fucking good. Maybe I'm just remembering something from many years ago and I was just hungry then.

    There, there. You were just overstimulated by all the options and you forgot it's an RPG, not an action game. Let's find something more your speed.
